Women’s Super League clubs are assuming that their season will not resume, according to BBC Sport.
Several clubs have told the BBC that they are expecting the season to be concluded without being played to a finish due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Clubs are set to receive a letter from the Football Association to find out what they want to do next in terms of ending the season.
It is understood the joint WSL and Women’s Championship board would then decide how to determine final placings.
The Football Association said in a statement on Monday that it envisaged “significant challenges in completing the season”, with no WSL matches being played since February.

Arsenal’s North London rivals Tottenham occupy sixth place and last year’s beaten FA Cup finalists West Ham United are in eighth.
At the foot of the table there has been no decision on relegation, with Liverpool bottom, or promotion from the Championship, with Aston Villa topping that table.
Arsenal last played a league game on February 13 when winning 3-2 against Liverpool at Chester City’s Deva Stadium thanks to a double from Vivianne Miedema and a Jordan Nobbs header.
